This content was provided by Dr. Lemke ""The most important thing to remember when treating children is patience. It takes time for kids to trust you, so you have to continually reach out to them on their level. Sometimes that means playing a game; sometimes it involves singing songs together. Being a mother has taught me as much or more about children than I learned in medical school. I have a fuller understanding of what makes them tick and what anxieties they have. At the same time, I need to connect with parents and put them at ease by explaining the issues and laying out a clear treatment plan" "
